On Bowling Green, Sweden and Massacres

 

I read in the news today they’re rioting in Stockholm,

days later, days beyond the triumphant ballast

of an egomaniac struggling with air time,

community, credibility, condescension, cowardice.

 

I suggested to a friend, ‘perhaps this is the plan’

that the idea was fed to the giant orange,

and he spoke too soon,

he wanted the moment before it occurred.

 

Before it occurred, before the wall falls,

long before anyone of any realistic frame of mind,

even has a chance to process the ordeal.

and then today, they followed through to save face.

 

Think about the magical kingdom we live underneath,

the one with false pretense, ignorant lashes, lined pockets,

oh but then I’m a crybaby for not having my share,

meanwhile people in worse position than me are new believers.

 

The New Believers – seems like a ripe old cliche

fittingly frightening factual news,

wait fake news, fake news, fake news

bad call!

 

When the ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ occurred,

as devastating a reality that sacrifice was,

it was the actual resignation of truth that hurt us all,

meanwhile we packed our bags for Sweden, oh no!!
